Autumn on the River

Two inactive double-crested cormorants drifting with the tide set in autumn tones of brown as the marsh winds down for the year.  They are not hunted, so they do not have the worries that geese do this time of year.  Because of a display from one of them a little earlier, my guess is they are a pair, although often when I see two together, one is a parent and the other a young bird.  They are about to come upon two snow geese, a breed I don't often see down there.  Maybe I'll post one of those tomorrow.
